It’s been five years since the “World of Ice” hit Netflix, and the new series, starring Kristin Chenoweth as the titular Ice Queen, is getting rave reviews.
“I love it!
It’s an absolutely perfect blend of comedy and drama,” said Entertainment Weekly’s Kristina Dyer.
“It’s an excellent debut of a show that has the potential to be a classic.
There’s a lot of good, interesting, nuanced moments.”
“The World Of Ice” is the latest collaboration between Netflix and Netflix’s sister company, Amazon Studios, which also produced the “House of Cards,” “Orange Is the New Black,” “Transparent,” “Veep” and “Transcendence.”
Netflix and Amazon Studios are also producing a new show called “The Black List” based on a book by a black man who was an NYPD detective in New York City.
Netflix has already picked up a number of other shows that Netflix has previously picked up, including “The House of Cards” and a comedy called “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend.”
“I think the series is great, but the fact that Netflix is so open and willing to explore all of its content with us speaks volumes about how they’re treating their partners,” said David Slade, Netflix chief content officer.
Netflix recently announced it will acquire “The Man in the High Castle,” an upcoming period drama starring Jason Momoa.
The streaming giant has been very vocal about its desire to make original programming, and it seems the show “The White Queen” is a part of that.
Netflix also announced this week that it is developing a new series based on the book of the same name by a woman whose family is involved in the American Civil War, which is the subject of “The Woman in the White Crown.”
Netflix has not announced an exact release date for the series, but it will premiere in March 2018.
The new show “White Queen” will be directed by Jennifer Hepler and written by the Emmy-nominated writers of “Transport Me to the Moon,” “Sleeper Cell” and the “Orange is the New Bit.”
“We’re thrilled to be partnering with Netflix to bring the next chapter in our acclaimed history to the world,” said Michelle MacLaren, President of Original Content for Netflix.
“We are thrilled that Kristin and her cast will be collaborating with us to create a new, thrilling and groundbreaking series that will elevate their world and their characters.
The world of ‘The White Crown’ has always been the center of our hearts, and we’re excited to bring it to life.”
The new series will follow Queen Elsa, a Queen of Arendelle, who is tasked with restoring order to the kingdom by removing her sister Elsa, the queen of Arethusa.
Hepler, who was nominated for a Golden Globe for her work on the series “House,” will also serve as executive producer.
The series will be produced by Emmy-winning writers Jeff Goldblum, David Fury and Stephen Broussard, along with Emmy winner and writer-director David Simon, and Netflix Original Series producer Jill Soloway.
The cast of “White Crown” will include Kristen Bell, Anthony Anderson, Nick Robinson, Ian Harding, Jack Black, David Harbour, Mark Haggard, David Aja, Tye Sheridan, Sarah Paulson, Anna Paquin, and Emily VanCamp.
“The world is in the throes of a moment of change and revolution.
The White Queen has been a key player in bringing that revolution to life, and I am thrilled to welcome her into the fold,” said Netflix Original Content President Rob Thomas.
“This show is about the power of women, about the struggle for equality and about the need to honor our shared humanity.
We have an exciting future with the creators of ‘White Queen.’
The next chapter of this groundbreaking story is about how to restore order, which includes reimagining what it means to be human.
We can do it.”
The series is expected to premiere in 2019, with plans to air episodes in 2020 and 2021.
